Within the 15 separate product sections on Sound Advice, Headphones, Earphones and Portable Players are amongst the most popular categories with our readers.

Allocating Most Popular badges was relatively straightforward but we don't expect this will stay the same for long as new models are coming into the market, and to the Sound Advice review squad, all of the time.

For October though, our most poplar models are the Bang & Olfusen Beoplay H95, which, perhaps unusually in these times, have dropped in price to £879, £110 less than when we tested them a year ago. The always popular Sennheiser HD 660S2 makes a good showing and perhaps more surprisingly, given the £4,800 price tag and apparent limited availability, the Yamaha YH-5000SE.

For earphones, the Sony WF-1000XM5 really stands out, as does the excellent Astell & Kern Kann Max as our Most Popular Hi Res Portable Player.

Worthy of mention too are the Focal Celestee which can be found online and in-store for £749, that's around £250 less than the price when we tested these excellent closed back over ear headphones.
